Hilton Smythe is pleased to welcome to the market, an exciting E-Commerce and artwork business, Unique Cultural Designs.

Unique Cultural Designs was founded by the current owner approximately 2 years ago when he identified an opportunity in the market. The business has been a real labour of love for him and has grown month on month even though the vendor has been running it at a pace to suit.

This lovely little, home based business is now being sold, albeit reluctantly and with a heavy heart only because the vendor needs to concentrate on his other business interests.

The business designs and sells unique cultural footfall related images that can be imposed onto numerous products such as posters, mugs, clothing, towels and much more. The designs are completely unique and as far as our client can ascertain, there is nothing of this sort of design anywhere in the world.

The designs capture the link between the area, traditions, history and characteristics of individual football clubs around the UK with an element of abstract and comical designs. To date the images have been very well received by customers who love the uniqueness of the art.

The business has sold thousands of posters of the designs, there are currently 12 designs available and the vendor has concentrated on selling 6 of the designs as he tests the market.

The business has strong longevity with numerous further copyright designs whihc can be sold for an additional £1,500 each.

Dropshipping can be offered to customers to reduce the stock the business holds.

The designs / posters have mainly be been sold to date at markets, car boot sales, and football stadiums and pubs on match days. The business has sold approximately 5000 posters with an average price of £5 each. The average cost to the business for each poster is approximately 50p so the margins are significant. There are millions of football supporters in the UK (and indeed throughout the world) so the market place and the sales opportunity is massive.

The business has, in the Pipeline, around 200 further designs that can be provided individually as and when ordered. These 200 designs will consist of 3 designs for each of the top 60 or so football clubs in the UK.

The sale will include the company website (unique cultural -------.--.--) and Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages and the business enjoys great visibility on the internet.
